For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/632M.html This is the first of Phil's Double Dragon movies published on the site (but his 2nd attempt). It is a fairly good attempt that does a good job of weapon use including the dynamite glitch (which kills enemies without the dynamite igniting). Topics: NES, Double Dragon, TAS, Tool-assisted, Speedrun, Phil
For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/626M.html This is the first attempt by Phil which completes an incredibly random game fast. This movie uses the same route as future versions. Newer versions achieve better luck manipulation. Topics: NES, Friday the 13th, TAS, Tool-assisted, Speedrun, Phil
For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/624M.html This is our 2nd Double Dragon movie by Phil (his 3rd attempt). It is about 40 seconds faster than his previous attempt.

For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/627M.html Like it's predecessors, this run uses the famous code 007 373 5963 to jump directly to Mike Tyson and deliver a pounding :) He is defeated at 2:08.xx in round 1 which surpasses any console world record.

For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/347M.html This is a two-player TAS of Double Dragon II - but here's what's curious: there's only one player - controlling both characters! That's really hard to do. In this version, the author uses the "flying knee" technique more often but still manages to keep it as interesting as the precedent version Topics: Tool-assisted, Speedrun, TAS, NES, Double Dragon II, 2-player, Phil

For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/69M.html This is a two-player timeattack on this game that is said to be quite hard. Note that the second player dies at some point. This is because of a bug in the game: the beta testers probably never got that far in the game with two players. Thanks to "Cyntalan Maelstrom" for this information. Graphically this game features some really nice scenes. Topics: NES, Battletoads, 2-player, warps, TAS, Tool-assisted, Speedrun, Phil, Genisto

Consolevania Season 3, Recalled Episode 3, labelled 25677-3, titled "The Black Episode". This episode was originally recalled from distribution, and not meant to be released, but was found hidden on bittorrent (on the 9th September 2007) with the reference "25677-3", and thus was uploaded to the archive once acquired - unofficially titled by fans as "The Black Episode" due to number referencing Prince's album of a similar title, it might be considered "Episode...

A 8 minute making of movie about Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, with several of the games developers describing the game in a voice over, and a tiny bit about how it was made, while some concept art, or game footage plays in between shots of the developers. It might be a bit confusing, but there are a variety of teaser details on the plot and gameplay, which seems to be the main content rather then details of how the plot was conceived or the gameplay actually made (although there are some...
